Video: Nils Favre climbs Rocklands classic

Swiss professional climber Nils Favre drove 2018 to Rocklands Boulders in July to design Livin Large (8c +). Due to the bad conditions he had to bury the idea and instead climbed numerous Rocklands classics.

“I got up at 6.00:XNUMX in the morning to be able to project the Livin Large boulder before sunrise,” explains Nils. “But nothing helped. It was exceptionally warm and rained again and again, so I switched to easier boulders and kept myself fit. ”Nils and his sponsor flathold documented the ascent of these classic South African boulders in the following video.
